campaign. with obama in the white house for another four years, republicans are looking for something much smaller. even a down payment on medicare. that they can still call victory. is that enough on entitlements, ed o'keefe? >> it might be in the short-term. i agree with a.b. and i agree with erskine bowles that eventually there's going to be longer-term discussions about this if they want to get serious about budget cuts. >>> this is is a president who has an appetite for spending cuts. he has talked about it throughout his presidency. he hasn't had a chance just yet. this may be his opportunity to do so and say look, i got taxes, but i also gave you spending cuts and we got serious about fixing this problem. if can he do that, i think he himself could declare victory. the question is whether more liberal members of the house and even of the senate, would go along with some kind of plan and that's why i think republicans may be right. minimal changes for now. probably a good thing. whether or not it happens long-term remains to be seen. >> a.b. stoddard of the hill, ed o'keefe from the

the obama administration's singular and immediate focus on the anti-islam video? >> why did you just focus on that part for so long rather thansay, look, it's not a black and white issue. >> one of the motivations may very well be either the video, the response to the video in cairo, and, certainly, that's not ruled out. >> fox news has confirmed the decision to shut down the cia annex was made in the early morning hours of septemr 12th after it took indirect fire, and while the annex was cleared of classified material and equipment in less than ten hours, the consulate less than a mileway has never been secured, lou. lou: we hear very little about who made the decision not to respd with military, para-military forces to support, and perhaps save, four americans who were killed in the attacks. >> well, here privately on capital hill from lawmakers, they wondered if the president meant there were not the assets available in the mediterranean to respond quickly. what we're seeing in the next few weeks, soon with open hearings the public can watch on capital hill, is refocusing on this -- thi

: the obama administration is now cracking down on states refusing to comply with health care reform. the white house announcing any state that refuses to fully expand medicaid to required levels will not receive full funding under obamacare. this as we learn another state, tennessee, has joined more than a dozen others in opting not to create a state-backed insurance exchange. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, is this because the rollout with obamacare is not exactly going as planned? >> you bet. when only 13 states opt in to medicaid expansion. nine states say they won't. there are a bunch of states sitting on the sidelines freting how they will be able to absorb this kind of cost. it is economic duress on part of the administration. they feel only way they can expand their coverage is threatening the states with funds. fact the matter, rick, 70 million people on medicaid. largest expansion of additional 17 million under obamacare. the states can't afford it. 25% of their current budgets are going out to medicaid. and that is going to blow th

stopped looking for work. fox business network's peter barnes is live for us at the white house with the latest on this. peter? >> reporter: that's right, heather. that 7.7% for november was the lowest level since december 2008 and the lowest level of president obama's presidency, and that was down from 7.9% in october. non-farm payrolls up 146,000 in november. both of these numbers were somewhat of a surprise here, somewhat above expectations because economistses had been expecting -- economistses had been expecting that because of hurricane sandy, job creation might have been a little slower last month, the unemployment rate might have stayed a little bit higher. it turns out that sandy did have an impact, but not on the headline numbers. >> if you look deeper in the report, you do see that over a million workers who normally work full time were reduced to part-time hours during the reference week because of bad weather, and over 300,000 additional workers weren't able to work at all because of bad weather. >> reporter: and because of the way the labor department calculates or

? the president or congress. i would make the argument that obama is clearly the one. certainly democrats are probably little bit more to blame. two years ago, democrats ran the entire town. they had a filibuster proof majority in the senate. they control the house and white house. if they wanted to cut spending at that time, they could have done so. republicans -- they could've done it over every republican objection and they could've gotten everything they wanted. they didn't do that. but i do think it's worth remembering that if you go back 10 years, president bush, and the republican-controlled congress, then acted too expensive for us that were not paid for. the thing that is worse today with obamacare, which i don't think we'll actually get paid for with these sudden efficiencies we will find in the federal government, which the federal government has never found before -- is that wars eventually end. entitlement programs like obamacare go on forever. just for those reasons, i do think democrats are far worse. all of these people have some blood on their hands. greg: you said that a

from the white house was let's fix this problem by incorporating a small businesses and less government intervention to curb the deficit. it has been astronomical. then i heard barack obama say the way we are going to do it is by making more cuts in various ways. he was saying by making more cuts and the only people it is going to hurt is the working class and somewhat of the middle-class. he should mention the fact that out of control spending has a lot to do with the credit card crunch. specifically because of the middle-class. i think if we get those tax cuts centered with them, i do not think the poll would be affected. you have these small companies that are developing, and he is saying have those small companies hire more people and get them involved, but come consumer expenditures. that is partially i think a solution. host: you are calling on the republican line and you think hillary clinton would make a good candidate. would you vote for her in 2016? caller: i think she would be a very vital aspect to the political process. as far as her running for president, 2016 -- god knows
